HI all,

I just have a configuration question. I have a somewhat more complicated home network than most. I have several public domain names (two of which I received email on). I have a linux mail server on a shared hosting provider which is my main mail server. Both domains have a backup mail server from a backup mail hosting provider. I have a server in my home that downloads all the mail from my main shared hosting server. If any mail goes to the backup mail server, that service then directly forwards those messages to my home mail server on a custom port.

So my question here is, how can I effectively use your SMTP Proxy for SPAM filtering which I desperately need as I get hundreds of SPAM messages every day. My home mail server is Windows Server 2003, the mail suite I use is 602 Lan Suite from www.software602.com. I do have the SMTP Service installed on this machine as well. I have no control over the shared hosting SMTP Server nor the backup mail server. Is there any way I can configure SMTP Proxy for use in my setup?



Thanks...

Nevermind I guess. I ended up doing the folllowing and it works great!

1. Install nospamtoday SMTP Proxy in home mail server
2. Configure nospamtoday for custom incoming SMTP port
3. Configure nospamtoday to send good mail to home mail server normal SMTP port
4. Changed MX records for my public domains to only use my SMTP redirect service so all mail goes directly to my home mail server. The redirect service then sends all mail to my home servers custom SMTP port.
5. Added whitelist information and various configuration to nospamtoday

So far this seems to work great. I only have 4 email addresses I want to use this for on my home network, so this is the perfect solution for me. It should cut down my spam problems by at least 80%. I can't wait for DNS to propogate so I can monitor the traffic trends.

Thanks for making such a great product and not limiting the free version to death!

Joe
